Pound to Swiss Franc exchange rates see slight dip following further poll changes (Joshua Privett)

Pound to Swiss Franc exchange rates see slight dip following further poll changes (Joshua Privett)

Pound to Swiss Franc exchange rates have seen further concerning falls overnight which remained fairly stable throughout the day. The fall was caused by a supplementary YouGov poll to the previous poll last Thursday which pointed to a staggering reduction in the lead established by the Conservatives when the election was first announced. A lead previously of 22% could now be as little as 7-8%. Whilst still a win for the Tories, this may not be enough to establish a majority, with some pundits expecting them to be as much as 16 seats short. There are a number of reasons why markets wish for a Conservative majority.

As such, unless large political forces are at play, rates are unlikely to be shifting heavily at any one moment. Furthermore, it could be argued that due to the escalation of threat level in the UK to critical, it is likely

How will the Election effect GBP/CHF? (Daniel Johnson)

Labour gains ground The Conservatives were in a very strong position following the election announcement. A snap election historically causes the currency in question to weaken, but on this occasion the opposite occurred. A Torie victory is deemed to be positive for the UK economy. Investor confidence grew and the pound strengthened as a result. With the election now closer than previously expected I would expect to see Sterling weakness due to political uncertainty. Looking at the last general election, we did not see any significant movement on the exchange until just before the event so be prepared for volatility around 48hrs before the vote
